I went through the DVR. "Romeo" didn't stay long..and they were alone for quite awhile. Then I found this..Maybe this stressed Juliet out more than I thought...

Their crops still looked fairly full...so, maybe there was a feed I didn't find?

Currently they are alone and no parent is in view..7:59 pm

I couldn't get back to see what was happening on the cams! I missed quite a lot. Fingers still crossed for every eyas and all the adults.

Not really clear on what is going on in NJ, not sure I want to know.

I thought these guys were being well fed.

I feel sorry for Juliet though.

Clearly, she is totally stressed out.

jersey city may14

remember sh e went from one to 3 and they are not babies, where they just need a few bites. they both have to adjust to amount o f prey etc.
caught back end of a feed. they were all lined up, not biggest crops but they do not need to bulge, like I have seen her do LOL

looks fine so far

And these three were abandoned. Perhaps they are not used to a ton of food. And her oen chick was not eating properly. Ben snd Kathy will be back up on May 29.

Wonderful Video of the days events: Union, JC, and the 3 fosters.

Ben and Kathy are the Best!!



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJxhFeXoh60

...and how the fosters "came to be"...incredible story!!

    As many of you may know by now, yesterday Kathy Clark and I visited 101 Hudson St. After watching the camera for several days since the first and only egg hatched on Wednesday evening, we became more and more concerned for the health of the 5 day old eyas. We also came upon a brood of three young (and healthy) falcons who were displaced (we've called them orphans) from the old Goethals Bridge, which is currently being deconstructed. Knowing that the orphans needed a home, we decided to visit JC and assess the health of the lone eyas, collect the unhatched eggs, and possibly foster in the orphans here.

    We first met with Cathy Malok of the Raptor Trust to get the orphan eyases, who came from the Goethals Bridge and were nursed back to health. They were found when a giant steel girder was brought down from the bridge onto a nearby construction area (this was on Monday, May 7). The crew working on the bridge had no idea there was a falcon nest inside the bridge and that there were tiny hatchlings (we believe they hatched around May 5) inside the girder. They were not found until the next day when construction workers heard chirping sounds and acted fast to cut open the steel girder to find out what was inside (the entrance to the girder/nest was from the bottom and it was closed off once lowering it to the ground). Lo and behold there were three hatchlings in there! At that age, without close parental care, the young eyases would not survive, so Kathy directed the environmental staff to put them in a box and keep them warm.

    “I don’t know how they survived” said Kathy as she explained the ordeal to colleagues. Kathy arrived at the site in the morning on Tuesday, May 8 and said that they were almost cold to the touch. She picked up the hatchling eyases and gave one to each person standing in the construction office to warm with their hands. Warming them up by hand helped ensure their ultimate survival, along with some tiny bits of food. After that, Kathy met up with Cathy from TRT where they would go to be nourished back to health.
    After being under the care of staff at TRT for almost a week, we knew that we had to find another nest to foster them into. That was not easy. We visited many nests throughout New Jersey and checked data for nests already checked. It was impossible to find another nest with few young that were around the same age, except for one: Jersey City. But we were concerned with the overall health of the lone eyas and didn’t want to foster in three (slightly older), very healthy eyases to jeopardize survival of their lone offspring.
    In the end, after assessing the health of the JC eyas up close, we decided the foster all three orphan eyases into the JC nest. This would give 41/AX the chance to use her great parental skills to provide for the three young while we help nurse the JC eyas back to health. We hope to foster the JC eyas into another nest but first we have to get him healthy (I say him, but it is hard to tell the sex right now)
    These are always tough decisions to make and we know that not everyone is happy that we intervened, but in the scheme of things, we had to act or the lone JC eyas would not have survived, and we wanted to find the best home for the three survivors of the Goethals Bridge demolition. This kind of effort is what brought falcons back to New Jersey, now with a stable population of at least 30 nesting pairs.
    We’re appreciative to everyone who has watched this camera over the years and supported our efforts to keep NJ’s oldest streaming wildlife focused camera online. We are tentatively planning to band the three orphans at 101 Hudson St. on May 29. We may or may not stream live, but either way we will be shooting video to share with you later.

Great video and update! Thanks SGB! I'm glad they did intervene, gives all 4 young in this situation a chance for survival.

I am always in favor of intervention. there are so many things they can do, and I am saying kudos to this team. Job well done. Our biologist would do and has done the same thing.

great team effort at the bridge. I am impressed. :15heartbeat:

Watched a feeding today and Juliet was very determined to get them to eat. Saw one chick refuse to open it's mouth while the other two were turned away trying to nap. Sweet Juliet wanting to make sure they were full. I imagine that everybody will settle down.

Here she is resting with her new babies. Isn't it amazing how falcon parents will accept and care for foster chick/chicks? They are superior beings. :girlyes:

Jersey City...first pic around 7:30 am...lots of food/snacks all morning.

Image

Image

Image

She thought they should eat again, so leftovers

Image

Image

They took a break, then more food came in.

Image

Image

Image

Dad came in for a while, but then decided they needed a snack, so he looked for leftovers to feed.
